HATS OFF

Hats off to Brothers Jackie Martin and Roster Martin.   They replaced that ancient overhead light fixture in the furnace room.  Now we can see to use that space.  This is just one example of the many ways Irving brethren give of their time and talents without the expectation of return.  For that we salute them.

2nd ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT

Sign up your foursome for our second annual Golf Tournament.  It will be held at Riverchase Golf Club on April 5th, 2014.  Contact Bro. Larry Gammill for details.   (972) 841-2085 or slabdancer43@ reagan.com

LAUGHING MATTERS

Thanks to all who emailed a favorite joke for this newsletter !!

911 instructions  
Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He's not breathing and his eyes are glazed, so his friend calls 911.
"My friend is dead! What should I do?"
The operator replies "Calm down, sir. I can help.  First make sure that he's dead."
There's a silence, then a loud bang.
Back on the phone, the guy says, "Ok, now what?"
